Congressman John Mica has called for “most” of the nation’s busiest airports to evict TSA screeners and replace them with private security, as Orlando International Airport considers doing precisely that in the aftermath of a deluge of scandals to plague the federal agency.
Despite helping create the TSA a decade ago, Mica, head of the House transportation committee, has become one of the agency’s most prominent critics, being instrumental in the passage of a recent bill which allows airports to opt out of using TSA screeners in favor of their own privately hired personnel.
